Such perception is a main reason leading to stop breastfeeding and start feeding infant formula. In fact, perception of insufficient breast milk of the mothers might not indicate an insufficient milk supply to the needs of the baby. Nurse-midwives play an important role to correct understanding about the meaning of insufficient breast milk perception and its related factors; assess and screen mothers who are at risk of having perception of insufficient breast milk; and provide appropriate nursing care to improve postpartum mothers’ perception and confidence in continuing exclusive breastfeeding. This article presents definition and factors related to perception of insufficient breast milk and roles of nurse-midwife in assessing, screening, and providing nursing care of mothers regarding perception of insufficient breast milk.</p> กฤติกา ธรรมรัตนกูล, เทียมศร ทองสวัสดิ์, ลาวัลย์ สมบูรณ์ ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1600 Sun, 23 Aug 2020 15:34:02 SE Asia Daylight Time The Effectiveness of Learning Program in Caring of Patients with Cancer Receiving Chemotherapy of Professional Nurses https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1591 <p>This Quasi-experimental one group pre–posttest design was aimed to investigate the effectiveness of the learning program in caring of patients with cancer receiving chemotherapy of professional nurses. Fourth-three registered nurse of internal ward with eligible criteria and 30 medical records of cancer patients were sampled. The learning program in caring of cancer patients receiving chemotherapy was developed. Data were collected using 1) nurses’ knowledge in caring of cancer patients receiving chemotherapy questionnaire 2) nursing practice questionnaire 3) nursing record tracking and 4) nurses' satisfaction on learning program questionnaire. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics—frequency, percentage, mean, and standard deviation, and inferential statistics such as dependent t-test.</p> <p>The results showed that mean score of nurses’ knowledge after attending the learning program was significantly higher than the before (p=.001). The mean score of nursing practice after attending the program for one month was significantly less than immediately attending program (p=.001). Incidence of hypersensitivity was found (6.7%). After attending the program, most nursing records were shown as completeness over 80%. Especially, signing of consent for chemotherapy after getting information, recording vital sign, and assessing falling scale at least one time in-between chemotherapy administration were demonstrated 100%. Additionally, the nurses’ satisfaction was found in a high level. The results were reflected that knowledge training for the professional nurses may be necessary to enhance ability in caring for the cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Additionally, the guideline to supervise and monitor nursing practice should be developed to sustain the nursing practice.</p> จันจิรา กิจแก้ว, วรารัตน์ ศรีสุข ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1591 Sat, 22 Aug 2020 12:21:32 SE Asia Daylight Time Healthcare and Related Factors of the Elderly Living Alone in Bantad, Mueang District, Udonthani Province https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1601 <p>This descriptive research aimed to investigate healthcare and related factors and to describe healthcare problems and needs of the elderly living alone in Ban Tad, Mueang District, Udonthani Province. Thirty elderly living alone with the inclusion criteria were the purposive samples. Data were collected by interview forms—self-care knowledge, healthcare, healthcare problem and needs of the elderly living alone. Psychometric properties were tested by 3 experts and the index of item objective congruence was 0.78. After tryout in 30 elderly living alone, the Conbach’s alpha coefficient was 0.83. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and content analysis.</p> <p>The results revealed that the overall healthcare of the elderly was at a high level (X̅ 3.50, SD 0.45). Over 70% of the elderly demonstrated knowledge above criteria, 50% had chronic diseases—hypertension, diabetes, 66.67% could helped themselves, 50% had to perform self-care, and the others had periodically received care from family and community members. For healthcare problems and needs, improper hygiene care, lack of exercise, inappropriate eating, sleepless, lack of caregiver, and financial problem for getting treatment were shown. The elderly requested care and different kinds of help from healthcare providers, relatives, and neighborhoods such as health facilities, appropriate activity arrangement, taking them to buy foods/help them cooking, having caregiver when they were sick, and safety care. The results reflect the necessity for the health agency in providing health promotion activities and physical and social safety to the elderly living alone.</p> กาญจนา ปัญญาธร, ชลการ ทรงศรี ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1601 Sat, 22 Aug 2020 12:48:33 SE Asia Daylight Time Compassion Satisfaction and Compassion Fatigue among Oncology Nurses https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1654 <p>This descriptive comparative study examined compassion satisfaction and compassion fatigue among nurses who provided palliative care for patients with cancer. A purposive sampling of 162 nurses was recruited for this study. Data were collected by using a ProQOL translated into Thai version by the researchers. The research instruments consist of compassion satisfaction and compassion fatigue questionnaires. Compassion fatigue questionnaire comprises burnout and secondary traumatic stress. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, Independent t-test, and Mann-Whitney U-test.</p> <p>The findings showed that compassion satisfaction was at a moderate level (X̅ = 36.27 ± 6.95). Compassion fatigue regarding burnout was at a low level (X̅= 19.83 ± 5.75) and secondary traumatic stress was at a moderate level (X̅ = 23.49 ± 4.96). The majority of participants had compassion satisfaction at a high level. &nbsp;Also, 70.37% and 53.70% of participants had burn out and secondary traumatic stress at a low and moderate level respectively. On a whole, nurses who had different personal backgrounds had no differences in their compassion satisfaction. Significant differences in compassion fatigue were found between nurses in IPD and OPD. Nurses who were working in IPD had burn out and secondary traumatic stress higher than those in the OPD (<em>p &lt; .05</em>). In conclusion, oncology nurses had compassion satisfaction in taking care of the patients with cancer. Nurses who worked in IPD and OPD had different compassion fatigue. Nursing organization should aware of nurses’ compassion fatigue and help improve their professional quality of life.</p> เบญจมาศ ปรีชาคุณ, วัชรินทร์ วุฒิรณฤทธิ์, อำภาพร นามวงศ์พรหม, สุชาวดี รุ่งแจ้ง, กชพร เอี่ยมสกุล, ศุภรัตน์ แป้นโพธิ์กลาง, ศศิพินทุ์ ศุภมนตรี บัวพล ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/1654 Sun, 23 Aug 2020 14:35:36 SE Asia Daylight Time
